    4.25 STARSJen Frederick delivers the third installment of this series gifting Knox Masters, hero of the first book, twin brother’s story. Even though there are a lot of similarities between Ty and Knox, being identical, both heading for the NFL, for me and Ara Martin that is where the similarities stop. I really liked Ty and if both brothers were standing in front of me it’s a no brainer that I could and would choose Ty. Ara Martin is definit...

    NOW LIVE!Amazon US * Amazon UKI'm a huge fan of Jen Frederick and especially of this series. I've been waiting for Ty's story for what seems like forever and I am not afraid to admit I squealed a little when I found his book on my Kindle. He's wasn't a huge presence in the series but he still instantly grabbed my attention and I knew his book was going to be brilliant. Played is a friends-to-lovers tale of Ty and his BFF Ara. They've been close s...

    Review @ Vanilla & Spice Books✮✮✮ 3 STARS ✮✮✮ I love Jen Frederick. Her books usually never fail to make me laugh and put a stupid grin on my face. Downed released almost a year ago so I was more than ready to get another Gridiron story. I also love the friends-to-lovers trope but unfortunately Played missed the mark this time for me. Let me explain: I get that if you have a wonderful friendship you care about you do everything to pro...

    Title: PlayedSeries: Gridiron #4Author: Jen FrederickRelease date: October 6, 2017Cliffhanger: NoHEA(view spoiler)[Yes (hide spoiler)]Played is the fourth installment of the Gridiron series, bringing us Ty Masters' story, who is Knox's identical twin. Knox is the hero from Sacked, book one, which is quite possibly my favorite of the entire series so far. The Gridiron books have been new adult perfection for me, and the standard for what I look f...

    3.5 Quit Being Scared Stars* * *1/2 Spoiler FreeThis is a study in loving someone who is focused on a career and could possibly make you feel second place. Because Ara Martin's father did that with her mother... Being friends with the one she loves, College Football Star Ty Masters, seems smarter than trying to share his life as a girlfriend. Jen Frederick puts us knee deep in the senior year of these two. Ty is working with everything he has to ...

    I really needed a book with friends to lover's trope + a sport romance book to work after the last two I read failed. When I heard Jen's new book was about Ty Masters, I needed this book like my next breath. Ever since Knox's twin brother made an appearance in Sacked I knew I needed his book. How could you resist a twin brother?Played is IMO really different than the first three books in the Gridiron series. Where the others were sweet, sexy and ...

    Played is the fourth installment in Gridiron series and it's a story revolving around Knox Masters' twin Ty . It's a story of growth in every possible segment that would define and mold a young person at the crissroads of their lives-taking responsibilities, considering and weighting decisions about the future, while they are, simultaneously, trying to find themselves and the love over the firm friendship.In that segment "friends to lovers" tro...

    ✱5 STARS!✱☾Oh boy. Okay, so I totally forgot this was coming out so soon! It's been on my TBR forever and it was finally released but I hadn't seen anything online about it! When I saw it was out, I downloaded it SO fast and began my commute into school. I did not want to stop! Ty is that adorable type of guy, I feel like the author wanted to portray him as a bad boy type, but nope. He's adorable and was just lost about his life - mostly gi...

    Ty and Ara are perfect best friends to lovers. The story is emotional as well as fun-to-read. Loved the bantering back and forth between them. And, of course, seeing Knox again & the incorporation of the "twin test." It's Ty's turn to face the NFL draft -- will he outshine his twin brother? You'll have to read his story to find out for yourself. If you are into sports-related romance -- and football especially -- this is a slow burn to the hot st...

    Yesssss! This was just what I needed!! I'd been struggling for days with connecting with the last few books I'd picked up but Played pulled me right in from the start and held me captive until the very end. I love a good sports romance and I love the way Jen Frederick writes them. She speaks as much to the romance reader in me as she does to my inner football fan, never simply slapping a helmet on a hot character and calling it a sports romance, ...

    Its not the fact that they did it because it's not bad decision but what bugs me is the fact that both Ty and Ara talk about not doing one thing throughout entire book to do exactly that at the end. (view spoiler)[her job and his agent (hide spoiler)] But I loved everything else :***

    ***AVAILABLE NOW - FULL REVIEW***4 Friends to Lovers CROWNSI have been dying for Ty's story since book one in the Gridiron series, featuring his twin brother, Knox. I was so enamored with his character and story that I absolutely NEEDED Ty's happy ending, and Jen Frederick didn't disappoint with this friends to lovers romance.Ty! How I longed to get to know this more serious, yet just as devishly handsome man. Everything from his dedication to fo...

    This was a good read.....however it didn't quite live up to JockBlocked for me! It was lovely hearing about some of the other characters again, and I'll keep auto downloading this series from Jen Frederick but book two still has top spot for me!!

    3.5 to 4 starsI have been anxiously awaiting Ty's story since the first book Sacked about his identical twin Knox. Ty wanted to develop his own identity away from his brother so he went to a different college and he is about to enter the NFL draft a year after his twin did since he stayed at school in order to help win a championship.His best friend since Freshman year is Ara Martin. She is a funny, loyal, and kind woman who wants to work in the ...

    I love a good friends-to-lovers romance! Add in football and we have a winner! LOL Honestly, though, I really enjoyed the romance between Ara and Ty. Best friends for four years, neither one of them were willing to give up their “best friend” status, even if it meant that they could be something so much more. So much bigger and better. It wasn’t worth the risk of losing their connection, their easy friendship. Until the day that it was wort...

    Played by Jen Frederick Played is the fourth book in Frederick's Gridiron series and is Ty's story! For those who don't know who Ty is, well he's the twin brother to Knox who we met and fell in love with in Sacked. While Ty loves and respects his brother, he's tired of always being compared to his twin, of them being seen as a unit. He wants to stand on his own and make the best choices and decisions for himself. He wants his own identity. He's a...

    3 is being generous. It's more like 2.5.I just didn't understand the author's thinking sometimes. First of all, the book picks up a few weeks after Ty and Ara's drunken hookup. So the reader is immediately playing catch up as to what's going on and missed the event that drives all of the events after it.Now I didn't read the first 3 books in this series so maybe there were details in those that would have filled some holes for me, but, though pas...
